If Love Were the Intention of Currency, Would Care be its Purpose?

Last Thursday at 12 noon, Mr. Aissa Azzouzi delivered a thought-provoking talk, “If Love Were the Intention of Currency, Would Care be its Purpose?” Legacy guests and alumni were encouraged to examine our intentions and goals: whether we are using our multiple forms of capital (time, energy, health, and monetary wealth etc.) to earn trust, manifest love, and express care, or are we acting simply for the purpose of accumulating more?  Mr. Azzouzi contended that a radically new, constructive, world is possible, if we build it on a foundation of right intentions and purpose.

In a Question and Answer session that followed, questions submitted by both chat and on video sought to determine what kinds of steps we as community leaders could take to make a changes. Mr. Azzouzi stressed “voting with our dollars” (investing in goods and services of value-based companies), spreading awareness of the need for examining our own values, and increasing transparency through some form of measurement of companies’ real actions toward love and care. After the session, participants engaged in a half-hour of networking to further chat and mingle. Mr. Aissa Azzouzi is the founding partner of Growth Train Africa, an accelerator for start-ups and social enterprises in Africa with. Mr. Azzouzi has more than 30 years of experience, first as a strategy consultant, thereafter as a COO, CFO, CSO, CIO, HR Director & CRO for the international mid-caps High Tech Groups, and several years as an entrepreneur in the Fintech/software industry. Recently, he served as CFO, Director of IT and Strategy, and Chief Risk Officer at the United Nations.
